Q #167: Have you heard of “stroads” & have you given much thought to ’em?

I think I'd heard this word once or twice in passing in discussions about crappy traffic patterns and urban planning, and then figured out that yeah, that was the context. But thanks to some awesome vids, I learned more about 'em, and what's bugged me about urban planning down here in the Houston metro area … Continue reading Q #167: Have you heard of “stroads” & have you given much thought to ’em?

Q #166: Why do people still fall for business pyramid schemes, & after being exposed, how the hell do many of these companies still exist?

I lost count the number of Anti-MLM mini-documentaries I've watched the past few weeks, and about so many companies. Many more than I ever knew existed, or ones I had heard of, but had no idea they were Multi-Level Marketing companies. Shows how often I branch out when shopping, I guess. And I'd never join … Continue reading Q #166: Why do people still fall for business pyramid schemes, & after being exposed, how the hell do many of these companies still exist?

Blitz Q #165: Why did Bugs Bunny NEVER take “that left turn at Albuquerque?”

I suppose this is a dual question, because the inverse would be "what would've happened if Bugs Bunny FINALLY took that left turn?" I've always wondered that. I think half a dozen times or more you have a cartoon segment that has the ground pushed up in a path. Bugs pops out of the hole, … Continue reading Blitz Q #165: Why did Bugs Bunny NEVER take “that left turn at Albuquerque?”

Q #164: Is the whole “wellness tea” thing actually a bunch of b.s.?

I was cleaning out my cabinet for my mugs because I finally got my expanding shelves in (yay!), and I discovered that I had a LOT more tea than I remembered. I hadn't had any in a while, probably because it was a pain to get to that part of the cabinet (and of course, … Continue reading Q #164: Is the whole “wellness tea” thing actually a bunch of b.s.?

Q #162: Why do multi-day headaches always seem to accompany major dietary changes?

I didn't post anything yesterday because the headache I had last night, and then I've got one that's ebbed and flowed most of the day (though I noticed it a lot more after my time on the elliptical trainer). I'm no stranger to headaches. I've had plenty of migraines in my time (though as my … Continue reading Q #162: Why do multi-day headaches always seem to accompany major dietary changes?

Q #161: How do you make healthy salads (& not get sick of them)?

I had to go grocery shopping yesterday because my parakeets needed some more greens and I was down to kale, lettuce, and cauliflower (at least they like 'em). But I also planned to get enough for myself so we could all get healthier. The tricky thing is, I don't mind a bunch of vegetables so … Continue reading Q #161: How do you make healthy salads (& not get sick of them)?

Q#160: Which is a better squirrel & critter deterrent: sound, light, or water?

I'd been thinking about this a while, after finding one of my corn stalks knocked over the other day. I'm annoyed as all hell and while I'd like to expand on getting lots of corn in the coming years (I'm dreaming of some of the varieties I'm planting), it's not gonna do a lick of … Continue reading Q#160: Which is a better squirrel & critter deterrent: sound, light, or water?

Q #159: When has something run by the American government been good for corporations AND the people at the same time?

This one's been bugging me for a long time, and certainly the past couple of weeks with the Texas Winter Catastrophuck of 2021. There's a line about some government funding that would help the corporations during the Iraq War from Fahrenheit 9/11. One of the attendees at a conference said, "It's gonna be good for … Continue reading Q #159: When has something run by the American government been good for corporations AND the people at the same time?

Blitz Q #158: When your sleeping patterns have been interrupted for a while, which is the worse scenario…?

I've pondered this one for years and still can't make up my mind on which would be worse when you've had lousy sleep for a week or so, and then one morning either: A. You wake up, and you're wide awake. Not a trace of sleepiness, must've been a deep sleep. You're awake enough that … Continue reading Blitz Q #158: When your sleeping patterns have been interrupted for a while, which is the worse scenario…?

Borrowed Q #157: Jan 6, 2021 was… a “revolution” of what, exactly?

This is just a small question in a fabulous post by the great John Pavlovitz written two days ago. I had to think of what was bugging me (other than everything) about the "Tit Offensive" as some have called it ("Beer Gut Putsch" works, too). But that's what I found disconcerting, because from my understanding, … Continue reading Borrowed Q #157: Jan 6, 2021 was… a “revolution” of what, exactly?
